Abstract:
For a model of one dimensional magnetic atomic chain in both a helical magnetic field and a transverse uniform magnetic field,we calculate its energy spectrum by solving Bogoliubov-de-Genes equation selfconsistently in the mean field approximation. We find that for a certain parameter setting,energy spectrum evolving with amplitude of helical magnetic field,appears Majorana fermion eigenstates. We calculate local density of states,and find that the local density of states for Majorana fermion shows peaks at the both ends(or at middle)of the magnetic atomic chain. We calculate wave function,and its spatial distribution agrees with local density of states.
